Default Re: Ask a specific question

I wonder if the choke plate is stuck. That will also do it. I have started many a car in a restaurant parking lot on he first cold day because somebody's auto choke got stuck shut. Have you tried just disconnecting the kills switch entirely. If that is faulty nothing will happen.

I would run the idle screw in all the way then back off three turns
disconnect the kill switch
turn on the gas
tickle it half a dozen times.
set the choke on full
Open the throttle all the way
find a long downhill stretch and just go like **** and drop the clutch and keep peddling.

Even if it doesn't start it should sound like its running. If it doesn't you might have a compression problem.

This is my latest swag appraisal..... scientific wild assed guess
